THEMIS Image of the Day, January 2, 2019. This VIS image shows a region dense with dust devil tracks (and several pedestal craters). Located in Promethei Terra, these tracks run parallel to the nearby southeastern margin of Hellas Planitia. The … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, November 27, 2018. Today’s VIS image shows several small channels. These channels are along the break in topography, that leads down into Argyre Planitia. Argyre Planitia and Hellas Planitia are deep basins in the southern … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, November 22, 2018. Amphitrites Patera is an old volcanic complex located south of Hellas Planitia. The surface in this VIS image has a unusual “Swiss-cheese” texture, one seen more commonly on the nearby south polar … Continue reading
This image targets a portion of a group of honeycomb-textured landforms in northwestern Hellas Planitia, which is part of one of the largest and most ancient impact basins on Mars. In a larger Context Camera image, the individual “cells” are … Continue reading
A small, well-preserved impact crater in Hellas Planitia. Beautiful Mars series.
Well-preserved 4-kilometer impact crater on the floor of Hellas Planitia. Why do we say “well-preserved?” Mainly due to the fact that the rim of the crater is still very visible. Beautiful Mars series.
At around 2,200 kilometers in diameter, Hellas Planitia is the largest visible impact basin in the Solar System, and hosts the lowest elevations on Mars’ surface as well as a variety of landscapes. This image covers a small central portion … Continue reading
Pitted material in large crater north of Hellas Planitia. Beautiful Mars series.
Channel deposits on Hellas Planitia. Beautiful Mars series.
